I have a black background and the default
preview-pdf-color-adjust-method as t made it practically
unreadable/unviewable.  Setting it to nil gave the usual default black
on white that I was used to, which is perfectly fine. "compatible"
also gave black on white in whatever colour scheme I tried, so not
sure what exactly I should be looking for.

In sum, default t is completely unreadable in dark background while
the other two options work as before.  This was tested with the
default circ.tex file and sample2e.tex latex file.

Thanks for the fix, I really appreciate that this works OOTB
installing from elpa if all the prerequisite image dependencies are
met. Which, they are if I download the Emacs-dep* version from gnu

Thanks again

p.s I had filed a bug report on preview not working, it can be closed
as fixed.
